Saying "farewell" is hard sometimes, isn't it? Especially when something feels...unfinished?
When it comes to the end of the year, I'm really tempted to get hung up on what I didn't accomplish. But guess what? I'm not going down that road today!
Now that the year is over, it feels good to just look back at the posts and projects, think about the great people I've come to know and all I've learned.
I think I'll just give myself permission to enjoy the satisfaction of coming to the end of my first calendar year of being a home-educating-single-mom-blogger!
We learned and grew together as a family, created and repurposed things for our home and holidays, and tried hard to see the beauty in the every day things of life- all without spending any money!
All that stuff I didn't accomplish? Well, there's always THIS year, right? ; )
A Year of Creating a Life

Here are the three most viewed posts of the year-

O Christmas Tree
I have ideas for Creating a Life in the new year, but I hold my plans loosely as I step forward to see where God leads us in 2014.
I can't tell you how much I appreciate your readership, your kind comments and emails, and for helping me feel a sense of belonging here.
With love and gratitude, I wish you a very Happy New Year, friends!
